It's hard to believe five years has "rolled" by. Man, That Stuff is Good has been a great online recipe book for Andy and myself. My hope is that you are able to use it the same way. With over 500 posts and counting, there is no reason to be stuck deciding what to fix for dinner.

It is snowing in Pulaski, Tennessee today, which isn't saying much, but schools, work and a good portion of the town has shut down. I was supposed to be on WKSR radio with Mr. Ed this morning to talk about what's going on this month at the Giles County Public Library but that has been rescheduled for Monday. I'm looking at big fluffy snowflakes falling while trying to make this a productive day.

For the most part, I don't know who checks in to read this blog unless you reach out to me personally. I do want to share a few analytics with you because when I do randomly look at demographics; what I see is very encouraging! Over one-third of my followers fall in the age 25-34 age group and with almost another one-third in the 18-24 range. Wow!! I find that very amazing and makes my heart beat loud and proud!!

One of my goals was to help beginning cooks learn to prepare easy to fix meals that taste good and don't break the bank!!

54% of people who visit are males. As the Mother of two boys and a husband who cooks as much or more than I do...super cool! My first cookbook was a guide for my boys when they moved out of the house for college.

This demographic at may explain why Homemade Venison Summer Sausage is ranking as most popular post this month. It is that time of year after all!

I was absolutely astounded to see that the Pickled Eggs, Summer Sausage and Wine-making links were among the most visited posts. That led me to believe the Redneck Food and Fun would be the hottest index page, but no, it was the Main Courses Page that was the most accessed.

So the young ladies were searching for daily dinner foods and the guys, being the "gatherers" were preparing the above ??? Maybe? Either way, I appreciate your visits and I love the comments. The most interesting one being the person who emailed me pictures of their wine-making experience. Specifically how they substituted the air-lock system with something that had similar properties to a balloon and that device going limp and then brought back to life. (Trying to keep this family friendly, so use your imagination) All I can say is necessity is the mother of invention. I'm not sure who that quoted should be attributed to, but it definitely applied here.

I look forward to the next milestone!
